Welcome to We Do Our Own Stunts, the blog for Valley Self-Defense, the premiere self-defense gym in Stillwater, Minnesota. A majority-woman-owned Krav Maga gym, we teach self-defense for every day life. Valley Self-Defense is a proud school of the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF).
Our instructors have completed an initial 160 hour training, followed by yearly renewal to keep their certification current, as well as a course on trauma-informed care taught by a local specialist. Specialized courses - such as kids, women-only, and law enforcement - require an additional 40 hours of training.
Our gym also hosts one of the only IKMF-certified defensive shooting instructors in the United States. Our Lead Instructor, Peter Eisenberg, as well as being the defensive shooting instructor is working on his NRA instructor certification so that Valley Self-Defense can also offer conceal and carry permits to our students.
We hope that this blog can be a place to discuss self-defense, talk Krav Maga, and answer questions that you might have. If there's a topic you'd like to see discussed in this blog, please feel free to comment below!
